With the world becoming increasingly dependent on technology, it is not surprise to anyone that IT projects are literally coming out of the woodwork. If that is not a big enough pill to swallow, IT projects, regardless of their particular industry, fail at a higher rate than infrastructure projects. All of this means that the project manager's role is crucial, and is even more crucial when it comes to healthcare IT projects.
Healthcare is a big business and is only continuing to grow. Because of this, technology must adapt and transform to meet the needs of the public. Failed healthcare IT projects are nothing new. However, they surely are something that can be learned from. In every failure is a lesson that can be used for a future project - a lesson that can help to save, or better, someone else's life.
